We replaced the school boiler this past fall. Without heat in school we would have had to close. We also installed a Water Softener System to protect the boiler and pipes. The broken ice guard that was hanging off the side of the building and could have fallen at any time putting our students in danger was taken down. Thanks to your generosity these bills have been paid.
